Thursday 14 October 2021: Alma of Sew Over It tells us about how Lisa Comfort the founder of Sew Over It decided she wanted to feature SewOver50 sewists, recognising their support at Sew Over It ensuring representation of sewists over 50 in their social media and on their newly designed pattern covers.
At Sew Over It they are all about stylish sewing patterns, gorgeous fabrics, easy-to-follow classes on Stitch School, a comprehensive online learning platform, and expert advice to help people learn to sew one make at a time. Their mission is simple. They want to inspire and teach as many people as possible to learn to sew and join our sewing community.
These values are aligned to the Sewover50 community to encourage people to inspire and encourage each other to sew.
Sewing is fun, sustainable and rewarding – there’s nothing like the joy of making something yourself!
Sewists in the Sewover50 community have been long time fans of Sew Over It and seeing our sewing friends being represented by Sew Over It is great encouragement for more sewing companies to recognise like-minded sewing people over the age of 50.
Sewover50 was created over 3 years ago. Sewover50 encourages people to meet and share with like-minded sewing folk aged over 50. Sewover50 is run by @judithrosalind and @sunnydayz06. Blogs are researched and written by @susanyoungsewing Sewover50 intersects with all communities. Ageism is never in style.
Janene is now on the cover of the Libby shirt and the Zadie blouse.
Please take the opportunity to visit @SewOverItLondon and see the sewists who represented Sewover50 on their grid: Nandita; Lena; Suzy; Ellen; Jen; and Allison. There’s also our very own SewOver50 model Janene @Ooobop on several pattern covers. Many more SewOver50 were featured in their SOI stories.
SewOverIt uses a diverse group on their grid and pattern covers. SOI patterns produced since March 2020 are UK 6-30, and older popular patterns are being continually updated….perfect for the #SewingCPD@CurvyPatternDatabase challenge (sewing a size inclusive pattern).
